Non-essential shops will reopen, house viewings will begin again, and outdoor sports courts will be unlocked as the lockdown in Wales is eased this Monday.

First Minister Mark Drakeford announced the changes in his latest review of the coronavirus lockdown measures this lunchtime.

The latest measures will also see private prayer in places of worship restart, and the "five-mile rule" relaxed to allow people to travel on compassionate grounds, with a more general easing of the rules planned for July 6.

And the housing market will restart, with viewings taking place in vacant properties and people being allowed to move where a sale has been agreed but not yet completed.

However, the review has not yet given the tourist industry the green light to reopen – that is more likely to come at the next review of the lockdown on July 9 – and beauty salons and nail bars are not included in next week's changes to retail. Full details here.

Prof Drakeford said: “The threat of coronavirus hasn’t gone away but thanks to the efforts we have all made over the last few months, the number of people contracting coronavirus each day in Wales is falling, so too is the risk of meeting somebody with virus.

“Given the progress we have made, we are able to take some additional cautious steps to further unlock our society and economy. This includes more retailers being able re-open their businesses, as long as they take measures to minimise the risk to their staff and to the customers who visit their stores.

“Our focus continues to be on the health risks of the outbreak, but we can now begin to cautiously focus much more squarely on the wider economic and societal impact the virus is having.

“We have provided a huge amount of support to businesses and jobs as they hibernated during the pandemic – now we start to take these careful steps to restart our economy.”

The move marks the biggest step in releasing the lockdown yet, and will see major changes come into force from Monday.

The following week, on June 29, schools will start to reopen, and the Monday after that, on July 6, the requirement to stay local will be lifted "if conditions allow".

Monday’s changes at a glance:

• Private prayer in places of worship where social distancing is maintained and gatherings do not take place will be permitted.

• House viewings allowed in vacant properties and house moves where a sale has been agreed but not yet completed.

• Restrictions lifted on outdoor sports courts but social distancing must be maintained. No contact or team sports will be allowed.

• Non-professional elite athletes, including Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls, can resume training.

The requirement to stay local and guidance against travelling more than five miles from home – with further distances permitted in rural area – remains in place.

However, new guidance will make it clear people are able to travel outside their local area on compassionate grounds. This includes seeing people at a care home or a youth offender institution – when these visits are allowed. People who are eligible to vote in overseas elections, where voting must be done in person, will also be able to travel.
